I think I want to know...

I hope you haven't died. For your own sake haha. For the people who know and care about you IRL.

I remember this thing... About how I wished I could live on the internet. There has been some stuff... About the singularity.

The position from nowhere. The position from everywhere...

I think I've been getting some perspective IRL. Some different ones. I've been finding different people to bounce from. Learning... I have been learning so much.

I hope I am a good person. I like to think that I'm internally motivated and that I'm not amenable to incentive structures - only poverty has upset me quite a lot and I'm not quite so immune from things around me as I wish I was...

It's important to stay on some sort of path... To walk alongside people who are walking on a simliar path to you. Pulling in the same direction, at least.

But there are people whose motivation becomes questionable. I think I've started to see... There is a moment when you think 'but what if we could replace the whole vascular system??' or 'why not just remove the pituitary, then, and control all the hormones ourselves?' or brain implants or kangaroo springs or hydroponic people or...

And I get this image of Icarus falling...

Which might perhaps be preferable to being shot out of the sky...

Restoring homeostasis to a chaotic system. I like that. This elective business... I'm not so sure. And populations... I don't think people do half as good a job of looking after the other as they do of looking after themself / their own. I feel sad for that.

I don't quite want to let you go. Perhaps I can see another way...
